Herbal Remedies for Liver Hemangioma Treatment

Abstract

Liver is the heaviest internal organ of the body and is present in vertebrates only. It weighs around 1.2 to 1.5 kg and is located in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. It also helps in detoxification and in various metabolic activities. It is a roughly triangular structure that consists of two lobes. One is the right lobe and another is the left lobe. Right lobe is slightly larger than the left lobe and is separated by falciform ligament. Liver is also connected to two large blood vessels, which are hepatic artery and portal vein. The hepatic artery carries blood from aorta to liver whereas portal vein carries blood containing digested nutrients. When due to these blood vessels a non- cancerous lump is made then this lump is called liver hemangioma. Some hemangioma occurs externally on skin and some occur internally like liver hemangioma. In this article we will be discussing liver hemangioma and also about the ayurvedic herbs that help in managing this condition.

Introduction

Liver hemangioma can be understood as the tangled network of blood vessels in or on the surface of liver. The tumor thus formed is benign (non cancerous) and usually do not cause any symptoms. The tumor is small and generally measures less than 4 cm in diameter. In rare cases it can grow larger and hence apply pressure on the surrounding structure. If it grows larger it can cause pain on the liver site and also can cause symptoms like nausea associated with vomiting. Many people have only one hemangioma but in some cases people can have multiple hemangiomas on their liver at once.  In adults it usually does not cause any complications but can be dangerous if develops in infants.  In infants it commonly develops in first 6 months of life. Further let us discuss the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and management of this condition.

Liver Hemangioma

Causes

It is believed that this condition runs in families and is having its roots stuck to genes.  Even in some cases this condition can also be understood as birth defects. It is most common in pregnant females due to hormonal changes and also in menopausal females on estrogen therapies. In ayurveda, liver is called as yakrit and liver hemangioma is understood as yakrit asrigdar. Yakrit helps in agni chaya upchaya that is maintaining the digestive metabolism. This condition arises due to imbalance in agni or digestive fire. This imbalance results in the accumulation of toxins and hence gives rise to yakrit asrigdar.

Symptoms and signs or clinical features

In common, there is absence of symptoms. But if the size of tumor increases then following symptoms can be observed

  • Pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen.
  • Feeling full after having small amount of meals
  • Nausea may or may not be associated with vomiting
  • Lack of appetite
  • Indigestion

In ayurveda acharya charaka mentioned asrigdara as rakta- pradoshja vikara and also as a complication of pittavrita apana vayu. Yakrit is called moola (root) of rakta vaha strotasa (channels of circulation). The strotasa carries dhatu (tissue elements and their constituents) that undergo transformation to their destination. This indicates that when the integrity of strotas is impaired both sthanagata and marga gata dhatu are involved and the vitiation spreads from one dhatu to another. This causes diseases of one particular strotas. Yakrit asrigdhara or liver hemangioma is believed to be vikara of rakta vaha strotasa.

Risk factors

  • The people lying in between the age group of 30 to 50 years.
  • Pregnant females
  • Females on estrogen therapies as high levels of estrogen tend to increase the risk of liver hemangioma.
  •  Infants before the age of 6 months
  • The people with family history of liver hemangioma.

Diagnosis

  • Ultrasound and Computerized Tomography scan can be used as the confirmation test. The imaging tests will show a small sized, nodular appearance of hemangioma mentioning its measurements and liver condition.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging can also be used if the sizeof hemangioma is large and there is probability of some other associated condition.

Treatment of Liver Hemangioma in Ayurveda

If the condition does not depict any symptom, then, no treatment is generally required. But in case of symptoms there are chances that hemangioma is increasing and will cause problems in future. So for this in modern science either use of corticosteroids is prescribed or surgery is to be performed. If the conservative treatment fails only then the surgical option is to be considered. In surgical procedure hepatic artery ligation is done after the removal of hemangioma so as to cut off the blood supply to hemangioma.
